What makes Catholicism and Atheism alike?

To start with, Catholics and Atheists both believe that they have the right to exist outside of Hell.  Catholics think that good things they do earn them exemption from Hell, while atheists think they are good only to exist outside of Hell with or without any form of morality.  Both are fooling themselves, they are very much alike.

No, what makes Catholicism and Atheism alike is they disagree with you and your Evangelicalism.

Thanks GrinAche, you have actually added an honest similarity comparing Catholics to Atheists. Both of those groups evangelize for their beliefs, and they both are against Biblical evangelism. Jesus evangelized relentlessly and instructed His followers to do the same. They hated evangelists like Jesus and He said they would hate all who follow Him the same as they hated Him.

Catholics are anti-Christ the same as atheists. Your Catholic brother is no better than you, you both think you deserve to exist outside of Hell and you are both falling down into the fire.

I live outside of Providence, not hell. (Actually, all the rest of RI is, like, "outside of Providence" :-) I've been around the whole state and I can't find a sign of "hell"! Couldn't find one in ANY of the 47 states I worked in (OR the 15 countries). It's definitely elusive. The "Saint" thinks I'll find it, finally. If I do, I'll "leave the light on for him", 'cause I think he's anything but a "Saint". He has these vicious thoughts every day it seems. He'd fit right in "down there". ;-)

You sound like a raving maniac. Too bad you seem incapable of discussing the topic.

Once again, an atheist shows its goodness by wishing we all burn in Hell together. If I were going to Hell, I sure would not want anybody else to go there. Atheists are jackass stupid.

Do you have the right to live outside of Providence ,old man? Or even inside it? If you do, why are you dying? Old fool.

If you don't mind me asking, what church denomination are you a part of?

The followers of both would universally agree you’re barking mad

You actually may have made a valid point there, Dermot. They hated Jesus and accused Him of being insane. Jesus said if I follow Him, they will hate me the same as they hated Him so it's your response is not only no surprise but it is honest and I really do appreciate it. I'll give you credit for it, but you've always been far too much of a rabid jack ass me to wait for you to make any more comments. I hope you're not burning in Hell and you still have time outside the fire. Maybe you will come to your senses and ask God to save you.....maybe it's too late and by your attitude and choice you have sealed your fate of frying like an undying sausage in the fire of Hell forever.

Correction: Catholics believe they have a right to exist outside of hell; atheists don't believe in hell

No difference.....one believes their is no Hell, the other believes there is no Hell for them....same thing. Saying you believe there is no Hell is the same as claiming to have the right to exist outside of it. Saying Hell does not exist is the same as saying you have the right to exist outside of it.

Wow

All those poor Hindus and Buddhist. All they did was listen to mom and dad and they’re all gonna BURN.

Wow - seems so cruel. Man, god is stern, eh?

Any moron who starts their response with "wow" is assumed to be too mindless for me to waste time reading before they are banned.

What is wrong with you? Why are you here? Do they not put up with your warmongering shit in church? It seriously appears that you spend your hours trying to figure out how to insult people from different ideologies you hate for some reason, on a debate site. What sort of religion do you belong to whose members and god is happy with you being so hateful? The one sole thing I respected about religion was their philosophical implications, but your behaviour makes them look like satire.

They hated Jesus, Jesus said they would hate me the same as they hated Him if I follow Him...and I follow Him gladly.

It is obviously you who is full of hatred, siding yourself with the religious ideologies and people who crucified the Innocent One who died for the ungodly.

If you can't offer any constructive comments in line with the OP, why don't you stay away instead of making an ass of yourself?

Hi I'm catholic and I dont know much about protestants but it doesnt seem to make sense: why would God give us the right to only exist in hell?

There is no predestination, we are all born equal in front of God and our actions and toughts determine if we go to hell or heaven

You are a sinner. You have no right to exist outside of Hell as a sinner.

Your actions and thoughts cannot change the fact that you are a sinner, your actions and thoughts cannot get you out of dying, dying in Hell forever is the damnation sinners deserve.

We are all born innocent as babies. At some point, innocence is lost and you are guilty, deserving to be left in Hell forever. You need to be saved now or you will be dying, and dying forever, in the fire of Hell.

The question here is "What makes Catholics and atheists alike?".

Your opinion of what makes them unalike is an entirely different discussion which you are free to make yourself.........if you still exist outside of Hell and still have the mental and physical ability and time to do it. You're done here.

"....unalike in terms of relative probabilities that either are correct."

What kind of gibberish is that? Is that the stuff they taught you in school and gave you a good grade for and made you feel like you sound intelligent?
